        I haven't done it yet but I plan on checking a Rubbermaid container, that way I can leave the containers down there for the stuff I don't need to bring back home.

          We brought everything down in 7 yes seven suitcases during our site visit. (We had a lot of stuff for our OOT bags) Make sure to check the airlines website. Some of them will not check boxes, or parcels internationally. I'm not sure what a rubbermaid container would be classified as but the last thing you want to do is get to the airport and they won't let you check it through.

          Also I can't stress enough...BRING RECEIPTS! We could have had major issues in customs but it ended up being a breeze since I had proof of everything.

              I have a ton of decor items already. (Michaels was having a 90% off sale on fall flowers) but I am worried about how to get it down there. Perhaps I will forgo the OOT bags in the interest of not paying too may overweight charges!

              I'd be interested in any success stories people have- especially those on Canadian Charter airlines (i.e. Air transat- not always known for being flexible..)

                  I'm using suitcases for everything. I also have a lot of decor and OOT items.

                    How thorough were they on receipts? I have a bunch of receipts and plan on taking suitcases but I don't have receipts for every single item.

                    Should I be worried?
